North End Parading Season
It's Catholic Saint parading season in the North End. Well, it's has been for a while, but I caught a picture of one this past Sunday from Ristorante Fiore on Hanover Street. I will avoid numerous snarky comments despite being a fallen Catholic, and say that I do enjoy the pomp, the colors, and the festive atmosphere of these parades, and of all parades. However, instead of screaming "throw me something, mister!" you're expected to pin cash onto the ribbon attached to the statue.
